“This cheesecake I made for a friend's birthday party but I never tasted it - personal preference, don't like coconut. The guests were all raving about it. They were maybe being polite! I found this on the net; it is a copy cat "like a popular restaurant's cheesecake" but don't know which one. This is courtesy of This is a recipe that the cook here at the home requested; so that he could make it for a party at another facility, he is making it for the Holidays. I didn't include refrigerator time of 4 hours or longer.”
